To celebrate Exeter Chiefs’ double victory of the Gallagher Premiership trophy and the Heineken Champions Cup this year, Exeter-based Two Drifters has launched a new bespoke 40% Spiced Pineapple Rum.

As with all of Two Drifters rums, this new rum will be made with a carbon negative footprint so Chiefs fans can celebrate this momentous occasion whilst helping the planet. The £44.95 rum is available exclusively from Exeter Chiefs Trading Post shop at or by visiting the shop in person at Sandy Park.

Commenting on this new partnership, Two Drifters co-founder Russ Wakeham says: “We’re delighted to produce a second rum for Exeter Chiefs - we’re so proud of our local team and thought it was only right to mark this incredible triumph.”

He continues: “Made from 100% UK refined molasses and purified Devon water, this 40% Spiced Pineapple Rum delivers a tropical punch with fresh pineapple, sweet caramel and spiced vanilla notes. We recommend serving over ice with cola and a squeeze of lime, or for a Tropical Mai Tai shake up 4 tbsp of rum, 1 tsp grenadine, 85mls pineapple juice with 4 tbsp orange juice and ice and enjoy!”

Launched 18 months ago outside Exeter in Devon, this forward-thinking brand has achieved colossal growth during this time and is recognised in the industry as championing sustainability and limiting impact on the environment.
